i have just been into argos and at the back where they have the managers specials and other stock they are selling the nintendo ds lite for £74.99 they had it in my store in black and pink. i was going to buy the ds as this was £50 but a lad persuaded me that the lite is sooooooooooo much better so i spent £25 more. i dont think they have loads of these but she took the box off me and put it back on display so not just the one so might be worth a phone call. i cant see this online so its just an offline offer.

ds @ £50 pink only in my local store
ds lite @ £74.99 in pink and black
this might help someone who is looking at the moment

This is most probably not in all the stores, I checked yesterday in the Argos store nearby and this item was priced @ £99.99. Argos doesn't need to sell this item @ £74.99 since it's already selling out everywhere at the regular price, and in many places it's sold out!

Probably a managers special in your stor only.

Good thing you bought the DS Lite, it is 100 times better the the 'phat' DS.

Great price, good for you! :thumbsup:

thanks rosalie - that code doesn't exist at my store so must be unique to Hanley. the normal codes are the usual £99.99 or £99.97 here, but well done you - you got an absolute bargain there! :w00t:

Have a great weekend

None at Sheffield Meadowhell

593 codes are local to store managers specials, if I remember rightly from when I worked there.

looks like a one off managers special. Voted cold as wasnt available at my local Argos so it doesnt seem like a ntionwide deal.

Seems like a very hot deal if you live in the locale.

Although it is probably not local to 95% of the population, if that 95% voted cold then the 5% it was available to wouldn't know of a cracking bargain they had access to. Perhaps for these types of 'special' deals the town/city ought to be mentioned in the post header.

Anyway, I've voted it hot for balance. :thumbsup:

Damn and i really wanted a ds and this is such a gr8 price -- pity no-one else can confirm it works

It may be worth mentioning that when Argos refer to Managers Specials, they mean it is ex-display or returned (used) stock.

Voted hot as it is quite often the local only offers that are the best. The more we get like this the more chance everyone has of getting that sweet deal.

mine must have been ex display then because apart from the box not being perfect everything else was still wrapped and cabletied up. i have bought stuff "new" from there with worse boxes though lol

if you havent used your £10 googlecheckout you could get it from ebuyer for £95 minus the ten makes it £85 and postage is cheap if you go for saver

Not neccessarily - it can also be stuff that needs shifting, in particular stock called "RO Lines" - items from old catalogues(obviously not the case in this example). But generally speaking, RO lines can have excellent deals, often not advertised.

i have just been to the newcastle argos and they dont have them for 75 quid either so it wasnt that good of a deal after all

Did you not say in ]this thread that you had finished Mario Kart DS? Figured you already had one!

He may have the original Nintendo DS.

how is it not a good deal just because you didnt want to go the 3 miles or so to hanley??? hanley argos is a argos superstore where the newcastle one is tiny it has hardly anything in there its the same as the longton one which is my closest argos. i know at least one person who has bought this on here from hanley so i am happy.:-D

yes i realised this after i had posted it was just trying to make up for ppl feeling left out lol

Can't you get them from Toys r us at the moment for £99.99 with a game (a new game like meet the robinsons or tmnt ) ?

hi checked out the deal in my local stores and offer did not exist but for anyone living in the cardiff area of south wales they are having the same offer in the st davids centre argos. Yesterday there were 8 ds (pink) in stock for £49.99 and 4 ds lite (white) in stock for £74.99 BUT they are managers specials which are refurbished products with 12 month waranty. I decided not to buy one myself as it was explained the products could have slight faults or surface damage which is superfical but for anyone who doesnt mind that go grab a bargain!!

Just bought a white ds lite from Hanley - £74.99. No faults or surface damage at all! Just 1 black and 1 white remaining. They had a lots of original DS's though for £49.99. Voted hot!

My wife sent her DS lite to Nintendo due to "screen calibration" issues (one that she paid full price for), and received a replacement (which I expect is refurbished). Not bad considering Nintendo provides another 12 month warranty though.

Time to buy another M3 card...

Back in stock at boots.. but doesn't look good for discount or points at the moment.

only problem with mine was box was a bit scuffed but as it was for me and not a present it didnt matter i preferred to save the money. i got the insurance for 3 years with it for £13 so if i drop it they will either have to give me a new one or money back as Gazzie saying only 2 left so wont be there for long.
